    These might prove mutually contradicting. Have you considered an nVidia Quadro K2000/K3000?

    Yeah maybe medium/high graphical settings is a little much for Below Zero and games like it for what I'd be able to get, but If I can get Below Zero to run at 60fps Low/Medium with a decent render distance, and for Don't Starve to actually run on my computer I'd be more than happy.

    And I didn't even know what a nVidia Quardro K2000/K3000 was till now, I'll have to see what they go for these days, but they seem to be a little weak for what I was hoping to get.

    yeah but a 10 series nvidia will and they're pretty common so i think he'll be ok as far as bios goes.

    I think so long as you select a card that is the length of the pci-e slot then it'll definitely fit. something like a 1050 mini might work and be in budget

    A 1050 Mini would probably fit just fine, it just depends if I can find one for a reasonable price, I'll look more into the other cards in the 10 series and see what I can find that'll work.

    Thanks for all the help!

  2. Howdy, I have an old prebuilt computer with a small case and I can't seem to find a GPU online that will fit in it, the GPU will need to be about 7inches or shorter and work on PCIE 2.0 and a Legacy BIOS.

    I'm hoping to stay under $150USD, and looking to be able to play games like Don't Starve, Subnautica Below Zero, The Long Dark, etc on Med/High graphics 60fps 1366x768

    Here's the link to my PC where you can find all of my current specs https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03348828

    You'd be much better off with a cheaper power supply like a Corsair cx450, it's going to have significantly better value.

    Yea I think you're right, I'll consider getting a cx450 or 550 instead of the G3

    Also, your CPU is fairly old and it wasn't even high-end when it launched. You're going to struggle to get 60 FPS in Warframe and subnautica, regardless of the graphics card.


    you could go older with an R9 380 and it would also have much better performance.

    Ahh I didn't even think about my CPU, that sucks, hopefully the bottleneck isn't too awfully bad. And I guess its not that big of a deal, as long as I can actually run Don't Starve at *atleast* 30fps, and be able to play Subnautica at low settings with a half decent render distance than I'll be happy. And just having an actual graphics card will allow me to do things in Photoshop I can't do currently

    And I don't think a R9 would fit in my case, I would have to take some measurements to make sure but a 10 inch long card seems too big.

    Thanks for all the help!

  4. Hello, I need some help upgrading my old prebuilt HP p7-1227c (https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03348828) computer.

    I'm hoping to stay close to $200 USD, but am willing to go up to around $265 if needed, I'd like to be able to play games like Subnautica Below Zero, Warframe, and Don't Starve, at 60FPS medium/high settings, as well as being able to draw/paint in Photoshop with less brush lag and at larger size canvases than 6x4 300PPI. My monitor resolution is 1366x768 and I don't plan on upgrading my monitor anytime in the near future.

    I'll be getting an EVGA 650W G3 PSU, and was thinking a XFX RX560 4GB would be adequate for what I want to do. I also need to know if the GPU will work on PCIE 2.0 with a Legacy BIOS, I read in a couple different forums somewhere that the RX500 series and most newer GPU's won't work on a BIOS Motherboard and need UEFI :(

    Any help would be gladly appreciated, thank you!
